I love Christmas.
And this year, I am adding multiple Christmas drawing tutorials and today I am going to teach you how to draw a Christmas Tree with lights.
All of these Christmas drawing ideas are for beginners.
This is what you’ll learn to draw today:
But you can use any tool – a pen and paper or color pencils or Copic markers or Photoshop because the drawing method remains the same.
How to draw a Christmas Tree with Lights – Step by step for beginners and kids
We are going to be using very simple shapes for this drawing tutorial.
Let’s begin with a rough sketch of the tree – for this, we will first draw a very long pointy triangle – this is going to be our Christmas tree.
Next, we will draw a rough sketch of the star on the top – this is going to make drawing the Christmas tree really easy.
We are done with the rough sketch!
Let’s begin drawing the Christmas tree.
Next, draw the star outline using a marker or any drawing tool. We are going to erase the rough sketch later.
Next, draw 2 short lines at the side of the tree under the star.
Now, let’s complete the first row of the fig tree by drawing a wavy line connecting the two short lines like this:
Next, repeat the same process and draw a second row.
Easy, isn’t it?
Repeat this two more times and you’ll have finished drawing your Christmas tree.
Lastly, draw the bark of the tree.
Now, this isn’t a Christmas tree without decorations.
So, let’s draw some lights on the tree. I’m going to draw a wavy line in the first segment of the tree – note the pink arrow.
Now, add little bulbs (these will be our Christmas lights) all around the wavy line.
Repeat this for the whole tree – I am going to make some space in the 3rd segment, because I want to draw a small face here.
Once you’re done drawing all the lights, draw a small face in the 3rd segment if you like – I like making all my objects kawaii so I do this. You can skip it if you want a plain tree.
And we’re done!
Let’s color the Christmas tree and the lights now.
Erase all the rough lines before coloring your tree
First, we’ll start by coloring:
- The tree green
- The bark brown
- And the star yellow
Next, you can color the Christmas lights any color you want. I am going for red and blue because that’s what I used at home when I was little.
You’ve learned how to draw a Christmas tree with lights!
You can draw this on a Christmas card or a sweet Christmas banner.
I hope this tutorial was helpful to you and you enjoyed drawing this Christmas Tree with lights.
